Shakespeare Over And Over Demonstrates Life's Singularity — The Irrevocability Of Our Decisions, Hasty And Even Mad Though They Be. How Solemn And Huge And Deeply Pathetic Our Life Does Loom In Its Once-and Doneness, How Inexorably Linear, Even Though Our Rotating, Revolving Planet Offers Us The Cycles Of The Day And Of The Year To Suggest That Existence Is Intrinsically Cyclical, A Playful Spin, And That There Will Always Be, Tomorrow Morning Or The Next, Another Chance.]

Quotes About Doric

"It is not a true civilization, and has nothing in it to satisfy a mature and fully developed human mind. It is attuned to the mentality of the galley-slave and the moron, and crushes relentlessly with disapproval, ridicule, and economic annihilation any sign of actually independent thought and civilised feeling whith chances to rise above its sodden level. It is a treadmill, squirrel-trap culture – drugged and frenzied with the hashish of industrial servitude and material luxury. It is wholly a material body-culture, and its symbol is the tiled bathroom and steam radiator rather than the Doric portico and the temple of philosophy. Its denizens do not live or know how to live." - Author: H.P. Lovecraft
